So, how am I misinformed? Why am I not thinking critically? What rhetoric? Materialist indoctrination? I'm sorry, you don't even know me and you make these kind of statements?
I'm glad you asked. That is thinking critically. Now you can intelligently show me how I'm wrong instead of ranting against the funds ( something I'm prone to myself occasionally)
You are misinformed about religion and spirituality. Spirituality does not have it's roots in fundi religions, wishful thinking, and zelotry. It has it's roots in actual experiences of people real people throughout history and it's perfectly logical to have spiritual beliefs.
Read your last post. It's very clear that you are responding emotionally not critically.
Retorich and indoctrination because I have seen nearly your exact statements 10 dozen times. It's regurgitated over and over again and is eronius. Regurgitators like parrots repeat what they think sounds good without any real informed analysis. It's no diffrent than the fundies that you and I are so oposed to. If you want to broaden your perspective on the issues you have to be familure with the subject material instead of just bashing it. I understand your frustration with religion. I share it, but you are falling into nearly the identical trap on the otherside of the coin.
I'm the oposite of you. I believe respect should be given then taken away where due, not withheld and given where due.
Before bashing us illogical spiritual people, you might want to take hard look into facts with an open mind. You might be surprised.
